I need to build a user interface for some error windows. It is a re-make of dialoges I build it Microsoft MFC C++.

I have used JBuilder 3 in the past. I am also using Eclipes right now. But there is no dialog editor built in.

Also, most of the controls I need to use are simple. But I use a ListView. Does a control like this exist in Java? Note: This is not a DB grid

Example...

That control is called a JTable in Swing.
And there are dozens of GUI builder plug-ins available for Eclipse. See here

Try out the GUI builder in IntelliJ's IDEA. You can get a 30 day trial. I have found it straight forward. It is most useful for avoiding all the layout stuff that is so troubling in swing.

For the data grid you need, it is a JTable. You will need to do a fair amount of hand coding to make it function like a real data grid.

See This Tutorial on JTables to find out what all is involved. The IntelliJ IDEA GUI builder won't do it for you.
